I had my first proper game of 40k the other day and I admit there were many rules we (I) got wrong that impacted how the game turned out.

But there was one rule which made me scratch my head and want some clarity with, this was the challenge rule.

A squad of assault marines, with a chaplain attached, assaulted my warlord (eldar autarch) I didn't have a chance because he was heavily outnumbered with power weapons, so I challenged him, he declined and put his chaplain aside. Does his chaplain or any special character still give the squad there attack bonuses or any special rule if they decline a challenge? We assumed yes as he were still attached to the squad just not fighting?

I don't have the Rulebook to hand, but IIRC, declining a challenge just means that he gets no attacks, can't be attacked unless everyone else is dead and there are still wounds to be allocated, and you can't use his leadership.

I believe all other bonuses/rules he give still work

Thanks that's what we assumed, I wasn't sure if he left the squad as he was cowering from a mighty Eldar Autarch

Cheers for the clarity :)
